Sunrise swims are it for me right now.

The pinkish blue shimmer on the water, the sound of lapping water, the weightless feeling of immersion, birds greeting the day, muscles extending, the water slick on my skin, steam rising, a distant hum of an airplane — a time I feel calm and alive with possibility — centered.


As the world wakes and life begins to happen, returning to this centered place is an internal choice.  Creating a vivid memory of the sights, sounds, and sensations help to bring me back to this center place.

As the days shorten, the pool closes, and the temperature cools, this center place still remains within me at my choosing. When I feel anxious, sad, afraid, or overwhelmed — re-experiencing, my center place opens me to possibility.

What about you? Where is your center place? Please share!
